In trying to be more of a home cook (and if you knew me, this is a stretch) I found a few recipes of yummy looking food made with Tahini. I dug down further and found the recipe creator was a well-known chef and they used only Tahini paste from Soom Foods. Good enough for me.
Found it on Amazon, purchased and within a couple of days because I am a Prime member, I find it on my kitchen counter.
I cracked open the jar and they recommend to stir it like a natural peanut butter to get all the solids mixed it. I couldn't wait to try it on my chicken. Wow. It was great. Looks like I'm hooked.
Buying food over the internet kind of makes me wary especially if it isn't fresh. This purchase was great. The expiration on the jars (it was a 2-pack) in on October 2019, plenty of time to eat, mix and pour over a lot of food. The jars arrived in a well-packed box, no dents, no damage to the box or the jars. It was like I went to a box store and picked it up. Very happy with purchase and glad to leave an outstanding review.
If you see any black stuff in the bottle don't worry about it. I did and contacted Soom and they kindly answered: "The black stuff is actually tiny bits of the hull on the sesame seed. The points at the end of each seed are black, and the hulling process always leaves a little behind. Usually, you will never even see it, but once in awhile, they gravitate into one area. They are perfectly harmless."
Absolutely delicious. Great product from a great company.
Much better option, price wise, is available at Trader Joe's or WF. Might be the same stuff! Its easy to find good Tahini these days, just avoid the ones with added oil. look for ones that have sesame as the only ingredient.
Tahini is basically sesame butter. Just like peanut butter and almond butter, there is price variation in the market for pretty much the same stuff...
Many purchase these, including myself, due to a recommendation from chef Michael Solomonov from Zahav Restaurant. His recipe for Hummus calls specifically for this brand. A jar will make 2 servings of hummus, or $4 for 1 serving of hummus!! not kidding.
Considering how much they cost, it gonna be one expensive Hummus.
Reading in his book(The soul of Israeli food), he talks about visiting the plant that makes these. But here is the weird part, all his interviews and recipes online or print always include a pitch for this brand as in "Tehina—Chef Michael Solomonov loves Soom Foods, available on Amazon";. I can't help but feel he has some vested interest in the brand. The bottle says packaged in Phily, where Chef has a restaurant. I can't help but feel cheated for non disclosure. I spent $16 for basically 2 batches of hummus.
I think this is marketing crap.
